My calendar has only just flipped over to November 2010 and yet I can already impart a hard and fast rule for 2011’s fashion trends: if intending to partake in the year’s jumpsuit trend be wary, very wary, of flared jumpsuits. Yes, 70s fashion may be having a major impact on current trends. Yes, Kate Moss might have donned a jumpsuit with flares. But no, it didn’t look quite right.
And therein lies the problem: in reflection, Moss’ greatest contribution to fashion is arguably neither her modelling nor her Topshop collection – it’s her ability to style outfits and, thus, set trends. And while she’s on trend with her fringe (it being a 2011 hair trend), jumpsuit, and bell bottoms, the combination of the latter two detract from the overall look.
